I was diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer in January 2002. I have undergone 6 months of Chemotherapy. During the initial CT Scan to determine metastasis, I was informed that the cancer had not spread. After switching doctors I learned that there was an abnormal node in the lung. Follow-up in June during treatment indicated no growth. A x-ray on the 29th indicated the node has grown. My question, has anyone had colon cancer that has metastacized to the lung, without going to the liver. All do***entation indicates this can happen, however, 1 doctor said it is unlikely. I'm concerned that this abnormal, growing node is not going to be taken seriously. A follow-up CT Scan is scheduled for Monday with a pulmonologist appointment for December. Any input would be greatly appreciated as I am very concerned that my lung is now involved.
